20 Photographs, 20 Stories
My story, in the frame!
The open book... with thanks to Nik's blog for the pics.
Sometimes, far from being a negative thing (I am still battling with the colleague who has gone too far in borrowing the work of others, and fingers crossed very tightly that something is getting through the rhino-hide....) this writing experience is simply lovely.
In the post this week came my copy of 20 Photos, 20 Stories. And I must say how beautiful the book is. My own camera has decided to throw a tantrum, otherwise I would have pictures of it, on the desk, outside in the garden, in my shed..everywhere. Because it is really something to be so proud of.
The book is a really lovely thing to own. The photographs are wonderful. Each one makes me want to use it for a writing prompt. They are wistful, enigmatic, and carry such potential. I have it on the coffee table thing/footstool in my sitting room, and it is causing a buzz of interested conversation with my visitors.
The official launch of the book is this Sunday. You can read about it on Nik Perring's blog HERE and on the photographer, Katherine Lewis's website HERE
The book has been done for a good cause. All profits are going to an Alzheimer's charity. Again, all details are on the websites linked above.Setting up the launch...
